Beginners Acting at Darlo Drama
Step into confidence, creativity and community
The first 4 weeks…
Darlo Drama’s Level One Beginners Acting course starts gently, allowing a safe place for everyone to play and explore with fun acting and drama games, trust exercises and improvisation. By the second week the group begins to get much more comfortable with each other, more relaxed and spontaneous. Here you begin to find greater confidence in self expression and a sense of play and exploration. Techniques to assist with presenting in front of a group, working through “stage fright” and connecting to an audience will develop your communication skills. Through the building of deeper, more authentic approaches to connecting to others and embracing a spirit of bravery and generosity will help you to find a greater sense of personal leadership and confidence through acting.
The next 4 weeks plus Your Performance…
By week five you can expect that the acting bug has well and truly bitten! So from here we take your new found confidence and creativity and begin to apply acting techniques and exercises to the performance of a monologue. At this point the course shifts toward working with the script, developing character, voice projection and taking direction. This allows you to really get “under the skin” of the character and to enliven your imagination into the world of your character
In week 8 you will have your final class and then on a separate night you will perform in the Darlo Drama Theatre…it sounds daunting we know – but trust us! We are with you every step of the way. You can invite your family and friends to join in celebrating your achievements. Our performances are a great environment and there is nothing like the buzz of the audience’s applause.
